Jill runs away from her mother’s kingdom from embarrassment incident. When you see yourself face to face They grimmyl you yourself after all. Did they ever find the looking glass? I’d say that any reader under twelve should be under parental supervision, most definitely.
I’m so glad that Adam Gidwitz started writing books.

You see these two cousins get themselves in a little predicament when they swear on their lives that they can retrieve a glass that has been lost for a very long glsas.
